shooting, vice president joe biden has met with the nra, healthcare professionals, gun control groups and a rep from walmart, the nation's largest gun seller. the president will lay out the measures created from those meetings. likely on the list: a push for an assault weapons ban and better background checks. the president speaks at 11:45 eastern. children who wrote letters expressing concerns about gun violence in schools will join him. a new york city school bus driver strike starts today, affecting 152,000 students. more than 8,000 drivers and support workers are walking off the job to protest a lack of job protections. new york city mayor michael bloomberg has proposed a competetive bid process for school bus contracts in order to save money. the union is upset it may impact current drivers. this strike is the first such job action by unionized new york school bus drivers in more than three decades. massive job cuts are happening around the globe. the world's largest platinum producer, located in south africa, is closing 4 mine shafts and letting go of 14,000 employees, which is
of the century. the e-mail says, "barack obama, joe biden and their gun ban allies in congress only want to blame you, bully you, vilify you and strip you of your second amendment freedoms." are they trying to scare gun owners? >> we're not trying to scare them. we're not saying your rights are at risk. the president of the united states is saying that. >> reporter: joe scarborough of "morning joe" had an a-rating from the nra when he was in congress. >> the more the nra speaks out after the slaughter of these 20 first graders, the worse they make it for their side. >> reporter: so far, a majority of the house still has a-ratings for their votes from the gun lobby. >> it has clout, because it had members in every state and almost every congressional district and because it's built up a reputation of effectiveness. >> reporter: the question now is whether that will change after the massacre at sandy hook elementary. andrea mitchell, nbc news, washington. >>> there is breaking news in the air tonight. and it's bad news for boeing. after a slew of problems, the faa has ordered all the new 787 dreaml

attorney general beau biden, son of vice president joe biden. welcome. >> thank you. >> let me start with you, if i may, mr. mayor. you're a mayor of a major american city, many of the big cities in america, from what you understand of what the president will be revealing tomorrow, is that enough? >> it's a fantastic start. the problem is that we haven't done enough in the past. first and foremost, president obama and the work of vice president biden needs to be commended. this will not be easy. we all know that. for all those, if there are going to be those voices already saying is it enough, how about joining the fight to make sure we're successful and then we'll keep pushing forward. >> police commissioner ramsey, there are two issues here, it seems to me, in terms of the type of violence. you have the predominantly handgun violence of criminals and gangs. then you have the mass shootings, which have escalated in recent years. i think half of the 12 worst mass shootings in american history have come since 2007. most of them now happen with the ar-15 style assault rifle. seems to m
in generations. the president was joined midday at the white house by vice president joe biden and some of the families of those 20 children and six staff members who were massacred at sandy hook elementary school. and he insisted that their loss will not go unheeded for a misguided notion of freedom. >> along with our freedom to live our lives as we will comes an obligation to allow others to do the same. when it comes to protecting the most vulnerable among us, we must act now. >> backed by children who wrote moving letters to him urging action after the newtown tragedy, the president signed 23 executive actions including steps to strengthen the existing background check system as well as proposals to improve mental health and school safety programs. he also called on congress to ban assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines. and make no mistake, the president knows this will not be easy. >> this will be difficult. there will be pundits and politicians and special interest lobbyists publicly warning of a tyrannical assault on liberty. the only way we will be able to chang

just said. remember, when president obama asked joe biden to head up this effort looking at potential reform, remember, he initially said the effort was supposed to produce recommendations by the end of january. and so it was big news last week when we heard that vice president biden was actually planning to report to the president early. he wasn't waiting until the end of january. he was going to report in mid-january. he was planning on reporting hi recommendations by tomorrow, by tuesday. but then today at this press conference, we learned that actually, the vice president has already made his report to the president today. the vice president pushing up the time frame yet again. and president obama saying today that he will make further remarks later this week telling us what is going to happen next, given those recommendations. this is faster than the president even said it was going to happen. and he initially said it was going to happen fast. speed it turns out is central to the strategy. and that is turning out to be true both in washington and in the states that are moving ahe
the gun issue at 12:30 eastern when vice president joe biden speaks at the annual winter meeting of the u.s. conference of mayors. the event happening one day after the white house announced its plan for reducing gun violence. a plan endorsed by philadelphia mayor michael nutter, who currently serves as president of the conference. the vice president speaking at 12:30 eastern, live on c-span. and at 6:30, pbs host tavis smiley, holds his annual forum focusing on poverty in america. former g.o.p. presidential candidate and speaker of the house, newt gingrich, and ohio representative, marshall fudge, are among the several panelists who will examine the issue and possible solutions. the discussion's entitled a vision for america, future without poverty. tomorrow night a look back at inaugurations from the past from harry truman's 1949 inaugural to president george w. bush swearing-in and speech from 2001. we'll see and hear presidents of the past 60 years on the day they officially took office. our coverage features universal news reels, footage from the senate recording studio, and presiden
that they can guy has only gotten more intense. vice president joe biden on tuesday will present the president with his task force's recommendation for reducing gun violence. mental health, violent video games and school safety have all been a part of his agenda. he even met with the n.r.a. but the group said it was, quote, disappointed in their discussion. that discussion is stirring passion from dinner tables to talk shows nationwide in ways we haven't seen in a very long time. here's our own piers morgan with a radio host who started a petition to get piers deported over support for gun control. >> the tyrants did it. hitler took the guns. stalin took the guns. castro took the guns. chavez took the guns. 1776 will commence again if you try to take our firearms. doesn't matter how many lemmings are out there begging for them to have their guns taken. we will not relinquish them. that's why you're going to fail and the establishment knows no much how much problem gan da, the republic will rise again. my family was at the core on both sides starting the santa ana because santa ana came to take
in newtown, connecticut. but vice president joe biden is expected to deliver his recommendations to the president tomorrow is holding one last meeting today with a dozen house democrats. as the gun control discussion takes center stage on capitol hill, the white house is already saying it will put its full force behind those proposals including what could be the toughest fight, the call to revibe the assault weapons ban. >> assault weapon ban is a tough one because it's hard to define what assault weapon is. and if we're just defining it by what it looks like, that doesn't do much for me. >> you think you have enough on capitol hill to keep an assault weapons ban from passing. >> i think right now we do. when the president takes all the powers off, willing to expend political capital, you don't want to make predictions -- you don't want to bet your house on the outcome. but i would say that the likelihood is that they are not going to be able to get an assault weapons ban through this congress. >> instead of dividing ourselves as a country along partisan lines let's come back to
the country and seen on current tv this is the "bill press show." >> bill: today, vice president joe biden meeting with president obama to present to him the recommendations out of his task force. he's been hard at it for the last month in the wake of the newtown, connecticut. to come up with recommendations for the congress. and according to some lawmakers 19 steps that the vice president feels the president himself can take without needing congressional authority on the issue of gun violence. this time it looks like it's just not going to go away. there will be some action. randi weingarten is very much part of that conversation. representing america's teachers as president of the american federation of teachers. before we go to the phones, randi, peter you've been following social media comments. >> we're tweeting at bpshow. rd copeland says barack obama was right. the money drives the nra. it is why nra want more guns in schools and not less. profits above all. even kids' safety. karen, short and to the point says nra sells guns from fear. they will never be sensible. we're tweeting at
best quality of life in the world and destroy the united states of america, barack obama, joe biden, hillary clinton, and eric holder are destroying the united states. >> stephanie: everything he says these days smells a little treasony. >> yeah, didn't he say he would be dead or in jail if the president was reelected. >> stephanie: yeah. the president's approval rating has shot up significantly after the negotiations with the fiscal cliff, and now again after the gun control. johnny in georgia. hi, johnny. >> caller: good morning, first-time caller from the peachy state of georgia. enjoy your show. >> stephanie: thank you. thank you. >> caller: try to watch it every morning. i have got a thought. i think that we -- you know, we can agree on a lot of stuff, and i think we need to stop calling these assault -- so-called assault weapons assault weapons. nobody [ inaudible ] pick one up and loaded it said i'm going to go assault somebody. they say i'm going to kill something. let's start calling them what they are weapons of mass destruction. and our republican friends
begin my thanking our vice president joe biden for your dedication, joe, to this issue, for bringing so many different voices to the table, because while reducing gun violence is a complicated challenge, protecting our children from harm shouldn't be a devisive one. over the month since the tragedy in newtown we've heard from so many, and obviously none have affected us more than the families of those gorgeous children and their teachers and guardians who were lost, and so we are grateful to all of you for taking the time to be here and recognizing that we honor their memories in part by doing everything we can to prevent this from happening again. but we also heard from some unexpected people, in particular i started getting a lot of letters from kids. four of them are here today, grant fritz, julia stokes, hina zeha. and taja good. they are pretty representative of some of the messages that i got. these are some pretty smart letters from some pretty smart young people. hina, a third grader. you can go ahead and wave, hina, that's you. she wrote, i feel terrible for the parents who los
spooked by something that happened 20 years ago. don't forget, joe biden who was running this was in the middle of that fight, then, too as a senator. so democrats are completely spooked by the gun issue. that's not going to change. what they have to be convinced of is that public opinion has shifted because of newtown and that there are some of these fights, not all of them, some of these fights that they can win. i mean, republicans are worried if they vote for some of these issues, they are going to be primaried by more conservative republicans. democrats understand that this may be an opportunity. >> gloria borger, thanks so much for that. >> sure. >>> you're about to hear oprah winfrey's reaction to lance armstrong's admission that he's a cheater. >>> later, does another member of the clinton family have political ambitions?

vice president, joe biden, for your dedication, joe, to this issue, for bringing so many different voices to the table, because while reducing gun violence is a complicated challenge, protecting our children from harm shouldn't be a divisive one. over the month since the tragedy in newtown, we've heard from so many, and obviously none have affected us more than the families of those gorgeous children and their teachers and guardians who were lost, and so we're grateful for all of you taking the time to be here and recognizing that we honor their memories in part by doing everything we can to prevent this from happening again. we also heard from unexpected people. in particular, i started getting a lot of letters from kids. four of them are here today. graham, julia, kenny and taja. they're pretty represented of some of the messages that i got. these are some pretty smart letters from some pretty smart young people. henna, a third grader. you can go ahead and wave, henna. that's you. henna wrote, i feel terrible for the parents who lost their children. i love my country, and i want
and that was incidentally first initiated and passed by joe biden. so she's the right person for to appoint whom we should do next. assault weapons falls within the bounds of the second amendment and so does everything else we are urging. this isn't a constitutional question, it is of political courage. the supreme court that defines what the constitution means and says has ruled that reasonable regulations are consistent with the second amendment so when the government raises the second amendment is nothing more than a red herring. it's time for the second amendment defenders in congress to call them to read that three measures i mentioned require background checks for all the gun sales making gun trafficking if federal crime and limiting military-style assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. we require leadership from the president and members of congress but there are other steps president obama can take without congressional approval. if any time he chooses with just the stroke of a pen. vice president biden understands this and we hope his recommendations will include at least these four steps t
them all but that's part of what joe biden did. and also he said that -- he said that if you have a policeman at a school, they would have a pistol. they wouldn't even have a glock. i don't know what that is but they wouldn't have one. you know what policemen use. all a shooter would have to do is get across the street with an assault weapon and shoot him. >> stephanie: yeah. >> caller: then come in the school. right? so what protection is that against an assault weapon? >> stephanie: yep. you know, it's interesting. she was talking about so and so is a hunter. i heard ed schultz say, he's a hunter. he said that last night. everybody knows i've been a hunter. i'm sick of having to state your props on guns to have the debate. it really shouldn't necessarily be relevant. you have no credibility -- >> unless you use guns all the time. >> stephanie: right. exactly. i've gone on record as saying i'm entirely too spazy. i don't know how i got that. this scratch here. this bruise here. don't know. spazy. >> how can you aim if you're crying? >> stephanie: and i'm unnecessarily weepy. 29 m

[playing tape] >>steve: it is not a woodpecker. >>gretchen: we did this yesterday and i don't even remember this. [playing tape] >> i know what it is. it lives in the water.
